Kristan Fischer (Fisch) has often been
described as the Energiser Bunny that
just won’t say die. In an earlier life he was
a Mechanical and Space Engineer but
has now turned his learnings towards
adventure and expeditions.
Kristan Fischer (Fisch
Fisch has spent the last six years
globetrotting around the world in search
of the unusual and crazy adventures.
He has ridden a soviet era motorcycle
2000km on a frozen river into the Siberian
Arctic deep in the middle of winter, ridden
(and pushed) a Tuk Tuk 2700km over the
Peruvian Andes and travelled 3000km
down the Ho Chi Minh trail on nothing
more than a cheap Chinese postie bike – to
name a few.
When Fisch isn’t on an expedition or
adventure he is busy working with
kids teaching outdoor education and
working with youth at risk programs both
domestically in Australia and abroad.
Silk Roy is a Melbourne based artist whose first exposure to graffiti was similar to that of many others - riding the train network of Melbourne back in the 90s. From that point on his passion to paint ran a familiar course from bombing to piecing, and more recently he has further developed his skills to create studio artworks.
Silk Roy's work is a combination of abstraction, linework, and colouring. Whether it be his extruded lettering to his smaller works on paper and canvas, he is an artist with an individual style that stays true to his roots. His works are vibrant in colour, with a subtle grunge undertone running through them. There are call backs to his roots in graffiti with a hint at what the future holds in terms of his ever developing style.
Kingston has been skate boarding since he was 8 years old, though he is an all-terrain skateboarder he has a preference for hitting the bowls. When he goes out for a skate, he feels free and finds that there is always something new to learn and always other skateboarders motivating him. Which is what keeps him so passionate and interested in skateboarding.
Kingston is inspired by other skateboarders such as Eric Koston, Ben Raybourn and David Gonzalez, because he believes that they all have a huge bag of tricks and are just really amazing to watch.
When he isn’t in the bowl he can be found either playing music, watching skate videos, drawing, painting or just relaxing and goofing around with his friends and family.
Hugo has a love for long walks on the beach, wearing hats (especially Kaos beanies), napping on the Kaos office floor and having his ears scratched. Whilst hats are his favourite he can be spotted wearing gloves and boots on the odd occasion too.
